Actually felt good, despite partying Sat eve. Got worn down by the 700m of climb, but no surprise there.
Missed spotting #1 on the map, so headed out to the road for a fast trip to Mt Nonotuck. Figured out the miss pretty quickly, but decided it was a pretty good skip so kept on going. Got to #2 at the same time as Ross, so that was good. Followed him into the control, except he got lost and finally made it his skip. I didn't have that option, so climbed back up 7 contours with Ed before the rest of the crowd got there and we headed back just past where I hooked up with Ross in the first place. Only big error all day; good for 10 min.
Rest of the nav was fairly easy with a reasonable pack. By myself going across to #20, but nailed that one, knowing the features pretty well.
Got a leg cramp climbing out of #21. Wasn't going to favor it that close to the end, so just tried not to trigger another spasm and kept going.
